ISIS captures new ground in eastern Syria after launching powerful attack against Syrian Army forces
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS/ISIS/IS/ISIS) has seized new ground in the eastern region of Syria after launching a powerful attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops along the Deir Ezzor-Homs axis.

According to reports from this front, the Islamic State began their assault by storming a Syrian Army garrison in the al-Shoula area that is located between Deir Ezzor city and the desert town of al-Sukhnah.

The field reports said the Islamic State Death Eaters managed to capture several points near the town of al-Shoula, marking the first time in several months that they have captured new ground in eastern Syria.

A source from the Syrian Arab Army told al-Masdar over the weekend that the Islamic State has recently increased their activities in the Badiya al-Sham region of Syria, prompting the Syrian and Russian air forces to get involved.

This has also been the case in northwestern Iraq, where the Islamic State elements have been involved in a number of fierce festivities with the Iraqi Armed Forces and the Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd al-Sha’abi).

ISIS has used the vast desert region between Syria and Iraq to hideout after their defeats in 2017 and 2018; they have used this territory to regroup and rebuild their forces.
